Course OverviewThis course is built upon the theory and principles covered in Introduction to Remote Sensing course by exploring techniques for computer-assisted image processing. The techniques and processing sequences of digital image processing will be introduced through lectures and laboratory exercise.
What You'll Learn
- Image enhancement
- Radiometric image restoration
- Image filtering
- Image classification
- Multi-temporal analysis
- Feature extraction
- LiDAR data processing
- Introduction to unmanned aircraft system (UAS) mapping
Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be able to manipulate and analyze digital imagery using industry standard software, understand how digital data are stored, accessed, and queried by computer, be able to employ color theory to visualize and interpret physical properties from digital remote sensing imagery.
